autumn / winter - 2017 / 2018


“Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. �

tobe color inspiration - autumn winter 17/18


letter from the editor POWER COMES IN COLORS. A SHADE REVEALED TO THE NAKED EYE HAS THE ABILITY TO ALTER FEELINGS, EVOKE EMOTIONS, AND EVEN INSPIRE. THEIR IMPORTANCE IN EVERYDAY CULTURE OFTEN GOES UNNOTICED. THE PSYCHOLOGY BEHIND EACH SHADE AND TINT ALTERS OUR HUMAN THINKING AT A SIMPLE GLANCE. HOW WE TAKE THE TIME TO PAIR THEM CREATES THE PALETTES OF OUR LIVES, AND THUS A STORY TO BEHOLD. AHEAD ARE PREDICTIONS FOR THE UPCOMING AUTUMN WINTER SEASON THAT WILL SHOW THE RANGE OF LIFE THAT COULD BE BROUGHT INTO THOSE WHITE SNOWY MONTHS. SOME MAY BE MORE PASTEL TO COMPLEMENT THE LANDSCAPE WHILE OTHERS WILL ADVENTURE INTO BOLD BOUNDARIES. ALL ARE MEANT TO INSPIRE THE WEARER TO TAKE ON THEIR POWER TO CHANGE EMOTION AND INFLUENCE THEIR SELVES AND THE WORLD WE LIVE IN. WE HOPE YOU FIND YOURSELF IN ONE OF THESE STORIES TO FULLY EXPRESS THE INNER BEAUTY OF THE COLOR WITHIN.

RENAISSANCE PAINTERS INTRODUCE THEIR TRADITIONAL TONES INTO A MODERN ERA. WITH A SENSE OF RICH HISTORY BUT LUXURIOUS FEEL, THESE HUES EVOKE A SENSE OF OLD REGALIA. OVERFLOWING WITH PASSION AND A SPLASH OF GOLD TO BREATHE CONTEMPORARY, THE OLD MASTERS FIND THEIR PALETTES RELEASED ONTO A NEW CANVAS. AS THE LANDSCAPE COATS WITH WHITE SNOW, THESE HUES WILL PROVIDE OPULENCE TO THE BARREN LANDSCAPE TO COME.

THE STREETS – NOW SMOOTHER THAN EVER. BRING ON THE NEON AND GRAPHIC LIFE OF CONCRETE BUT WITH A CREAMER APPROACH. THESE TONES SCREAM LIFE IN COLORS WITH A DULLER ASPECT COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL BRIGHTS THAT AREN’T TOO OVERWHELMING FOR THE COMING WINTER SEASON. BEST WORN WITH DARKER HUES TO PUSH THEIR BRIGHTNESS TO FULL POTENTIAL WHILE STILL REMAINING EASY ON THE EYES.
